Tzatziki powder

Tzatziki powder recipe

Everyone loves Tzatziki! Sometimes, though, you can’t always use it in the original “liquid sauce” form… But in a dry form, form of powder, so many more doors will open to our beloved Tzatziki!

Check out my “Tzatziki Rocks” or “Savoury Meringues” posts to see some of the cooking applications of the dehydrated Tzatziki powder.
